Gallagher hails This is the Place “the best thing to come out of any Mancunian’s mouth ever”

Liam Gallagher has said Tony Walsh’s This is the Place is the best thing to come out of any Mancunian’s mouth ever.

Originally penned as a commission for the charity Forever Manchester, a charity that funds community activity in the city, Walsh recited a version of it in front of a crowd of thousands at the vigil to remember victims of the Manchester terror attack.

Oasis front man Gallagher said: “I want it placed on record that it’s the best thing I’ve ever heard to come out of any Mancunian’s mouth ever.

“It was fucking mega. It touched me. So good fucking on him”.

Here’s the poem in full, which was originally posted on the New Statesman.
